Wrist Bling

So I made my altered can last night.  Not quite ready for posting yet.  It may need to hide in the closet for a few days 'til I decide if I like it or not.  No worries, I'll post it either way, 'cause it is a cool project.  In the meantime, I have another project I'll post. :)
I made this a while ago (right around Easter) at a class I won at my church talent auction.  It was a lot of fun and the bunch of us who won slots created some awesome bracelets and necklaces.
The beading class was actually taught by one of the teenagers at my church.  She was wicked patient and very helpful with all of us.  With all the bad press of how kids these days haven't got any social skills or public speaking abilities, this kid was impressive!  She had such great presence and she did a wonderful job teaching the rest of us adults how to make our jewelry.  I'll be honest, if I had know it was going to be taught by a teenager, I might not have bid on a slot.  I'm happy to admit I was wrong.  Just goes to show, don't judge a book by it's cover.  Gosh- I'm a reading teacher, I should know that by now!!!

So what book have you misjudged lately?  I hope you were pleasantly surprised and not terribly disappointed.


  1. Such a pretty bracelet. Love the pastel, spring colours.
    What have I misjudged lately....humm my weight, I thought I was lighter than I am, LOL.

  2. Beautiful bracelet! Can't say I remember misjudging anything recently....but I remember once meeting a girl who looked really "rough around the edges" and I thought she'd be the type to beat you up in a dark alley if you crossed in front of her.....turned out she was sweet as a kitten!

  3. Hi Moriah,
    This looks so cute! I have been beading a lot lately. I have to get around to taking pics and putting them up.

    And thanks for the note on that tree. It looks like pear tree, now I've got to keep an eye out for fruit on it at some point :-).

  4. I so wanted to come to the can class last night, but I had to wrap a project up. Now I am waiting to see yours!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
